Teaching Strategies GOLD is an authentic assessment measure designed for teachers to gather information on children ages birth through kindergarten. The measure is closely aligned with the Creative Curriculum for Preschool. The Creative Curriculum for Preschool and Teaching Strategies GOLD are based on 38 objectives for development and learning organized within the areas of Social–Emotional, Physical, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, and Mathematics. Two additional objectives relate to English-language acquisition. Objectives were developed from research-based predictors of school and life success.
The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is a widely used, comprehensive curriculum based on child development and early education research and theory (Dodge, Durham, Duckett, & Stover, 2011). The curriculum is based on the same 38 objectives for development and learning as Teaching Strategies GOLD; these objectives include predictors of school success and are linked to essential early learning standards.
